We have cloudy skies throughout the area this morning with some patches of drizzle or light rain, temperatures are ranging from around 50 in the Clifton area to the mid 40s further inland, winds are from the east-northeast around 10 mph.
A low pressure now off the North Carolina coast will move slowly northward, which will cause periods of light rain this morning, becoming steady and heavier this afternoon into this evening. Temperatures with the clouds and rain will only be in the 50s, and with a rather brisk onshore wind it will feel uncomfortable.
The low pressure will be weakening on Wednesday as it moves just offshore, giving us some lingering light showers; temperatures will not be as chilly.
Sunshine and warmer weather is expected from Thursday through the weekend although there is a low chance of a shower on Friday and again Sunday evening. Saturday looks to be the warmest day of this period with highs well up into the 80s.
